Metric – Fantasies

05/22/2009

The Canadian new wave rock band has just released the official music video for “Sick Muse,” off their new album Fantasies. On “Sick Muse,” vocalist Emily Haines puts up a cold shoulder, and warns us all to watch out. This is not a love song, as Haines scorns on the hook “Everybody everybody wants to fall in love, everybody everybody wants to play the lead!”

Metric has a dynamic sound, which crosses into indie rock like Santigold, and then experiments with other styles. On their first album, Grow Up And Blow Away , on the album titled track, the song infuses electronic rock with somber-R&B with dark lyrics “if this is the life why does it feel so good to die today…blue turning gray / grow up and blow away.”

This may not be the happiest of bands, but they create some good music.
